Standing against big government and for the people!

I am literally fed up with this assault and total disregard for the Pledge of Allegiance. America, what is wrong with you? Have you forgotten our heritage? Have you forgotten our Founding Fathers? Human sacrifice and patriotism has no meaning for you? Are you content with returning to the ways of the nationalist England and other countries from whence you came?
I am proud to pledge allegiance to my flag! I am proud to be an American (although it's waning as of late). Where are all the parents and their outrage and disdain for the Department of Education's total lack and disregard of the Pledge in the classroom? No wonder a Councilwomen has stated she doesn't have to pledge to a flag. No wonder the few squeaky wheels get the grease; the atheists and rebellious. America, where are you?
America, will you stand up? Will you come to her aid? Will you go to those Board of Education and school meetings and state your case? Will you contact the schools principals in your area and make sure they know that you, the taxpayer, will not stand idly by as they show complete disrespect for our nation and our flag? Will you remind them that we are One Nation Under God?
Here is a prime example from the state of Arizona, I received this in an email today:
This is exactly of what I speak... Not only was this child the only one to stand and take part in the pledge, the teacher joined the other students in mocking and bullying her. ONE student stood, ONE! This is a travesty patriots. WE do not live in a third world country. Although, immigrants from a third world country whom have obtained their US citizenship have more respect and regard for the American Flag and Pledge of Allegiance than our own, bred and born here.
There is no time like today to start standing and promoting American exceptional-ism. If we don't, we may never have the chance. You can start by contacting the school above and let them know (in a firm but courteous manner) that this teacher's behavior was reprehensible. Let them know that the educators need to be teaching and respecting the pledge and leading by example and not mob rule.
This is not the only incident of this kind of thing happening. There are numerous. There are entire schools that won't allow the pledge. Conduct a Google search on the Pledge of Allegiance, you may be surprised.
America, we must stand, fight, and lead, if we don't we will lose our great nation to the socialist.
If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.
God Bless America Again,
Darla Dawald, National Director
P.S. God Bless the one girl that stood and stated the Pledge. It's good to know that one will stand in the face of adversity... that is what made America great, the few that stood to make America a better place for all future generations.

Since I posted this a member Dr.. Eowyn posted the story and has since received this reply that I will share with all of you. Of course it is slanted in their favor!!
Less than an hour after I posted this, Fellowship of the Minds received an e-mail from a public relations firm on behalf of Maricopa High School, containing a statement from the school’s principal:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MARCH 30, 2012
(Maricopa, Ariz.) – Following is statement from June Celaya, principal of Maricopa High School, regarding a student who recently observed the pledge of allegiance.
“On Wednesday, March 28, 2012, a student stood to take part in observing the pledge of allegiance, while others in the classroom chose to remain seated – a right, and a choice, given to every student per our MUSD School Board Policy regarding ceremonies and observances. Those who choose not to participate are expected to observe the courtesy of not disturbing others.
Unfortunately the student who stood to observe this patriotic right, returned to her seat prior to finishing the pledge and indicated that she felt mocked and embarrassed by other students in the room via written communication to the teacher, Mr. Charles Allman. Mr. Allman then asked to speak to the student privately to clarify her concerns. Upon determining her feelings, Mr. Allman
followed protocol and reported the incident to the counselor, with whom the student was given the option to speak. It was Mr. Allman’s first priority to ensure the student felt safe in her learning environment, which is truly a second home for all students.
Maricopa High School, and the entire District, cultivate a supportive learning environment and a community in which our students, staff and parents feel safe. It was Mr. Allman’s first and only concern to ensure the student in question did not feel embarrassed or hurt in any way, by practicing in this patriotic observance, which is a point of pride for our great nation and those who serve the country to sustain our freedom.”
– June Celaya, Principal of Maricopa High School

Fight America, FIGHT!!!

Incidentally, this is from their school website:
WHEN READING THIS ARTICLE, I COULD NOT HELP NOTICING THAT IT WAS FELT THAT THE YOUNG LADY MUST MEET WITH THE COUNSELOR TO TALK ABOUT WHAT SHE DOES.
IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO KNOW HOW MUCH THIS COUNSELOR MAKES YEARLY BUT BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE ONLY WAY THEY CAN JUSTIFY THE WHATEVER IT MAY BE TO THE TAXPAYERS.

What do you expect? obama and his wife michelle, began their virtual campaign refusing to pledge the flag, showing disrespect for our country and our heritage. michelle said, "all this for a flag?". Well, that shows her hate and distaste for what our troops bled and died for, "FOR" her freedom and for her safety. She's an ingrate and a traitor, just like her illegal husband. They both attened Jeremiah Wright's hate sermons for 20 years. If I had been in that so called "church", I would have walked out, dusted my feet, and spat at the doors. Instead, they both sat there, baptized their two children there, and claimed Wright as their mentor and best friend. Hmmmm. Ist there anybody out there with a brain that can think for themselves? Why would anybody live here if they hate our country so much that they find our flag, our heritage, and our troops so distasteful? It's time they become illegals in another country, or wake up and smell the roses. What a wonderful country we have, or was, until the hate mongers called Jeremiah Wright, the black panthers, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the obama's who hate our country so much that they work to "change" it to make it a red communist muslim country which will kill our freedoms, and really kill our flag. A red flag is not better than our red white and blue. obama never did tell us what the "change" would be, he just candy coated a ton of lies to make us think he was righting a wrong. He never told us that he was going to make us a communist muslim nation and that he would be our dictator. How could the sheeple believe somebody who they knew absolutely nothing about and who refused to salute the flag from day one?
obama is a poor example to our youth, and a perfect example of what a president should NOT BE.
Amen to that Greg!
I agree with you to a point Greg I totally despise socialism. To borrow a phrase from the socialist pig himself "Let's be clear about one thing" Socialism is not a black thing it's a stupidity problem which I'll be the first to admit there's alot of blacks suffering from this & blindly follows & supports him because of the color of his skin,however there's many whites that follow & support him as well simply because he's from the oppisite party of Bush.stupid for a different reason but yet stupid just the same. Now I am extremely verbal & widely known as a Bush supporter,that's George W Bush 43 not George H Bush 41, never the less you should really watch the way you phrase your postings they have racial overtones, I hope I haven't offended you that was not my intentions & please keep posting your patriotic views.
Get your kids OUT of the damn gov't schools, they are much to young to be subjected to this indoctrination!!!!! The Pledge is NOT a pledge to a country or an individual but, a pledge to an ideal, that of freedom of the individual. That is something that we all need to cherish and MUST be promoted if this country is to survive.
Any teacher who teaches this kind of disrespect for our nation and its traditions is a child abuser and should be treated as any other child abuser. Removing the student only saves one child from this abominable situation. A better solution would be to get that teacher/child abuser removed from indoctrinating more children/young adults into the socialist one world order government that seems to be prevalent in public schools.
This is another reason to eliminate tenure for public school teachers.and just like any other child abuser never permit them to have intimate contact with children again. make them register as child abusers.
On the contrary, I could not find the word "sexual" in TPP's post. Therefore, since you added the extra word with all it's negative connotations, you might be the subversive agent. Perhaps your emotion clouded your reading skills and you felt the extra word was implied? Some of us might give you the benefit of the doubt (that you did not give TPP) before labeling you as insane.
There are other kinds of abuse besides sexual abuse, and one of those is emotional abuse. I don't know the age of the child in question, but the teacher has a tremendous responsibility to remain neutral. If there was any participation by the teacher in the mocking of a student, all Americans with any sense of decency should want the teacher removed or disciplined in a meaningful way.
You need to learn to read and comprehend friend. No where was sexual mentioned in the comment. Their are many ways to abuse a child, why you think sexual abuse for the comment is weird when it wasn't mentioned by the comment. People need to get their kids out of public schools or demand they teach what schools are supposed to teach and not indoctrinate them and humiliate them.
Diana, the Pledge of Allegiance is a pledge of loyalty to a nation which is the United States of America.
I can't tell you how sorry I am, but, in order to be correct, your statement should read "...was the United States of America."
I have said it before: I was born in the 1950's and, if the country then was the United States of America, the place I live now no longer is. It's in the same place, but it isn't the same country.
